My Climate Story

by | January 14, 2022

Just a quick one for you today!

The newsletter I was originally planning on writing got derailed because I got Covid earlier this week.

(For those who want to know – I’ve been incredibly tired but I think it’s a mild-ish case, I’m trending in the right direction, and a big thank you in advance to anyone sending their best. I appreciate you 🙂

But I do have a back-up plan – a bonus podcast episode for you!

My climate story & Crowdsourcing Sustainability

If you’ve listened to any of the CS podcasts, you’ll know I always start by asking people about their climate journeys. I love hearing these stories and believe they’re important to share.

Recently, the tables were turned and CS volunteer Macey Schondel interviewed me to learn more about my story as part of her work to introduce our team online.

So if you’re interested in hearing more about my climate story, the origins of CS, and a little more behind the scenes, you can tune in for this 16-minute bonus episode (YouTube|Podcast)!



0:00 Ryan’s climate journey.

5:20 Catalyst or “A-ha” moments along the way.

8:30 What has this experience been like? Was it the path you imagined?

10:15 What does the future of CS look like?

12:45 Thoughts for people looking to find their place in the climate movement.

15:08 What do you like to do in your free time?

Alright, that’s all I’ve got for you today. I’m about to lie down and watch “Don’t Look Up” for the second time (I find it oddly comforting…perhaps it’s just the feeling of being seen). Anyway, highly recommend if you haven’t had a chance to watch it yet.

Please take care of yourself out there!
